Are You Seeing Spots? - June 2009

I made this polka dot cake for my sister, Valerie's, birthday.  We were also celebrating my brother-in-law, Josh's, birthday, so I added a little something on the cake for him too (see further down in the post).

Below is the 'little something' I added for Josh.  He is a Denver Broncos fan,
so I made a watermark of a football with the word BRONCOS on it on one of the orange spots.  :)

I had to refrigerate the cake because of the ganache I used in between the layers.  So, the moisture on the icing and fondant made the cake look shinier (below) when I brought it to the party, which wasn't a big deal.  Unfortunately though, it also 'erased' my Broncos watermark, so I just had to show Josh the picture I took of it beforehand.  :(
